Shhh...you're not supposed to give secrets away like that!

Besides, watching a game without commentary droning on in the background implies understanding. Even comprehension. You don't want to make all those people feel inferior, do you?

I actually prefer the British/ Scottish announcers over American announcers. American announcers tend to "over commentate". While the British announcers let the game speak for itself. I have always liked that about their style.

The arrogance and "sarcasmo" of the ABC comentators during world (Lalas to mention one ) and no HART on the game does not help. They are also boring
